Trick or treat? Connecticut State Rep. Tim Larson (D) wants to move Halloween from Oct. 31 to the last Saturday in October. Does Larson have an inordinate amount of election contributions coming in from Big Candy?
Let me start of by saying I think any state or federal legislators who spends time and effort to propose stupid legislation should be unceremoniously thrown out of what ever elected position they are in. Got that Larson? You should be shamed out of office for even bringing this up.
A colossal waste of time. Larson’s statement – it makes me sick to think this guy even took the time to release a statement – reads in part…
“Halloween is fun night for the whole family, but not so much when you have to race home from work, get the kids ready for trick or treating, welcome the neighborhood children, and then try to get everyone to bed for an early school and work morning,” Larson, a Democrat who represents East Hartford and South Windsor, said in a statement outlining his proposal.
You know what Tim? Rushing around bringing kids to and from school, football practice, hockey practice, soccer practice, gymnastics, swimming lessons, library events, play dates and everything else they have going on has been going on for years. Somehow the kids get fed. Somehow they make it to school. Parents figure it out on their own, without the state’s involvement thank you very much.
Lay your head down in shame and walk away from the microphone Rep. Larson. Families don’t need the government to tell us when kids can go door-to-door in costume asking trick or treat?
I brought up Big Candy at the beginning of this post simply because Larson’s legislation would certainly result in two Halloweens, with many families refusing to budge from the traditional date, and lots of kids demanding to go out on both days.
Follow the candy!
